Two men from Whitchurch will make a proverbial mountain out of a molehill next month to raise money for a children's charity.

Harry Parkinson and Nathan Fox, both 21, will scale Wales' highest mountain, Snowdon, to raise funds for Rays of Sunshine.

But they won't be scaling the 1km mountain once, they will be doing it nine times to simulate what it would be like to climb the world's highest mountain – Mount Everest.

The pair will be undertake their challenge over two days, on August 18-19, and say they will not stop until the trek is complete.

"We are setting out to complete an ‘Everesting’ on Snowdon, to help raise money for Rays of Sunshine," said Harry.

"This will mean we have to summit Snowdon 9.3 times to reach the equivalent height of Mt Everest.

"This is calculated to take anywhere from 24-30 hours and we can only stopping for short food and hydration breaks.

"As far as we are aware, we will be the first to attempt and hopefully complete an Everesting on Snowdon."

Harry says the pair wish to raise fund for the charity to help provide support to those in hospital.

"There are 49,000 children and young people living in the UK with a serious or life-limiting illness," said Harry.

"This figure is increasing every year.

"Rays of Sunshine brightens the lives of these brave and deserving young people and their families by granting wishes and providing ongoing support within hospitals.

"Any donations will help make an impact on making someone's wish come true.

"Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause it will mean so much."
